Nishma Shah of award-winning vegan educators & caterers Shambhu's will teach you how to make a healthy and delicious South Indian dosa meal - which happens to be gluten-free - and show you how to include a mix of highly nutritious and delicious pulses in your diet.

The class will include:

  • How to make a versatile wholesome split pigeon pea sambhal, also known as daal which can be batch cooked
  • How to flavour the sambhar using a combination of particular spices to enjoy as a hearty soup or with masala dosa or otherwise with rice to create a Gujarati dish
  • How to make a thin dosa using a fermented red rice and split urid bean batter.
  • How to make the classic potato-based masala for a masala dosa
  • How to make some delicious chutneys & dips: mint raita, coconut chutney and onion & tomato chutney
  • How to make the universal favourite: onion bhajia, but healthier baked versions which do no compromise the awesome taste
  • Opportunity to ask Nishma questions
